Headed to Subang Skypark terminal via a 30min Grab ride. Unlike the massive KLIA, Subang is simple and uncrowded, catering to only turboprop flights.
Checked in at the Firefly desks without hassle and boarding receipt issued.
There is actually a lounge at Subang, SkyLounge, which can be accessed via Priority Pass membership. The lounge is simple, with sofa seating and a small buffet setup.
FIDS in the lounge.
Basic buffet selection
Headed through immigration and security to the departure gate, where the earlier flight to Seletar was just being boarded. There were 2 Firefly flights to Seletar Airport within 25min.
Main aircraft at Subang were Firefly and Malindo ATR72s.
Remainder of the passengers waiting to board our flight.
15min later, boarding was called and it was a short walk to the tarmac to the awaiting aircraft in a special livery.

Kuala Lumpur Subang (SZB) - Singapore Seletar (XSP)
Flight Time: 1H01M
Boarding the prop.
The seats were refurbished recently with new leather upholstery and modern design.
View from the window.
Boarding was completed very swiftly as the fight was only half full. After the safety demo was performed by the crew, we taxied the taxi to the runway.
Departure from Rwy15.
Sunset over Port Klang.
Immediately after seatbelt signs were turned off, the 2 very efficient and friendly crew started the refreshment service.
Firefly still offers a complimentary snack and drink on all their flights. On offer today were a choice of peanuts or curry puff (or both), and mango juice or soya bean milk. I am certainly impressed with the offerings by the airline.
Nothing much to do for the rest of the flight till we started the descent into Singapore. Johor Bahru city center, as well as Singapore's Woodlands estate and the causeway can be spotted.
Flew towards the north-eastern part of Johor before starting the approach into Seletar, descending along the controversial glidepath above Pasir Gudang developments and port into Seletar.
Landing into Seletar's Rwy21 and taxied to the new airport terminal.
Parked at the stand.
Disembarked and walked to the terminal. We were the last scheduled commercial arrival flight into Seletar for the day.
From the tarmac, you are led straight into the small immigration hall.
The sole baggage belt is just after immigration. There were some interesting décor around as well.
After customs check, it is straight into the small arrival hall.
Greenery between arrival and departure halls.
Empty check-in hall.
Seletar Airport is definitely under-utilized at the moment, serving just 6 Firefly departures and arrivals daily. There are news that Malindo and Indonesian carrier Wings Air are also looking at starting flights into Seletar. Hopefully Seletar will be slightly busier with the additional flights in the future, and the secondary airport will play a bigger role in the growth of aviation for Singapore.

Firefly remains as a very comfortable way to fly, especially if you would like to experience a turboprop flight from Singapore.
